The Lehrer Report for May 19, 2017


Thursday, May 18, 2017

Garden report: the lilacs are starting to fade. The primrose and lily of the valley have bloomed. I started to mow the lawn but couldn’t get to the back because of the wet spots.

Postscript to me Dalmatian trip. The TV show “Game of Thrones” used several locations in Croatia. Shops feature paraphernalia from the show and there are tours of the locales. In addition, the Star Wars movie used locations in Dubrovnik. Stores had all things Star Wars as well.

Kathy Teagno of Amherst reminded me the the Garden Club of Amherst is holding its annual plant sale, May 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on the Town Common. The plants and shrubs have been dug from the gardens of your friends and neighbors, so you know they will do well in your yard.

Also on the Town Common May 20 is the Friends of the Amherst Senior Center Tag Sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is a fund raiser for the Senior Center.
